Recently CORE was the first New York real estate brokerage firm to adopt a technology that completely changes—and greatly improves—the co-op board application process. Featured in The New York Times, BoardPackager is a good reminder: if it’s always been done a certain way, it might be time to ask why.

CORE caught up with Ming Ooi, BoardPackager’s COO and Co-founder:

“It has been a tremendous boost for BoardPackager in the real estate, technology and investment sectors to have CORE as an early adopter because the agency’s reputation as a cutting edge brokerage really added to our credibility and opened a lot of doors and opportunities. Furthermore, CORE agents have been instrumental in not just the adoption but providing valuable real-world feedback that has allowed us to improve the platform; and we continue to value and encourage that insight from such tech savvy users.”
